Yes, I am a Kontakt nut. I came across two recent freebies, one a new release by a new developer and one a former for-sale library currently offered for free---but today is the last day it's for free.

Xperiments, a new library, new developer:
https://www.darkskyaudio.com/

Currently for free (last day);
https://www.sub51.co.uk/product-page/quondam-kontakt-komplete-kontrol

A good place (among others) to check for freebies and info about them:
https://vi-control.net/community/threads/all-vi-freebie-contributions-here.27876/

I also usually post info about some available Kontakt bargains and freebies that I come across here:
https://homerecording.com/bbs/threads/some-kontakt-bargains.393462/page-7

I have done a little beta testing and have, as often as not, accepted a complimentary copy of the tested library for the effort. As often as not I have purchased it to support the developer. I have no personal commercial interest in library developers other than being a consumer, wanting the best value for my money, being appreciative of creative efforts, and wishing them success.

Thanx Paj,

I am currently working on a space song and the DarkSkyAudio may find a way into it.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

I'm looking forward to the follow up of March of the Warlock King:
"Return of the Rightful King" I hope that's released this year sometime.

No problem, Mario. Here's two more along the same lines that have been out for a while. The BigWerks arp is not the most convenient but it does do some nice things for their libraries.

@musicstudent: I posted another thread around here for the Free Kontakt Player instruments. I was hoping to keep this for those who have the full paid version, hence the title of the thread. Maybe add it here (?):

Thanx Paj.

I'm in a situation where I have so much software that I am pretty picky when it comes to stuff. That is it must be something that I can use and/or something that sounds really good. The acoustic guitars and the garage kit fits into both of those categories.

The free Minima 2 is a very good Kontakt player that has a few good sounds. You need the full version of Kontakt to use it. It also includes a free sound every month.

Here's one with simple granular options and sample DND (Drag-aNd-Drop---always a nice feature) that just came out:

https://cinematique-instruments.com/pages_instr/inst_korn.php

Cinematique Instruments has its own style and often their apparently simple GUIs belie the results.
